It’s a short week as we lull between Christmas and New Year’s, but that doesn’t mean we’re not jam-packed with exciting events! We’ll have a special New Year’s Guide ready to tell you how to party hearty on New Year’s Eve and Day, but in the meantime here’s some family-fun events for you to participate in.

It’s the last full week you can strap on the ice skates and get some great skating in.
